Abstract

Objectives: This research examined the factors related to marital satisfaction.

Method: 127 volunteers filling for divorce and 1670 married individuals from normal pop-ulation with no prior history of divorce were studied by Marital Satisfaction Questionnaire which comprises four scales, attractiveness, rapport, attitude, and investment.

Findings: The study showed that in the divorce group the years of marriage and education, mean age at the time of marriage, and the number of children were less than the other group. In a multivariate analysis, the most significant relationship factors related to marital satisfac-tion included investment, attitude, and rapport.

Results: Marital satisfaction was greater among those who were older and had higher level of education at the time of marriage. Marital satisfaction is greater among couples who have mutual respect for each other and possess both communication skills and more rapport. Attrac- tiveness alone is less effectual on marital satisfaction than investment, positive attitude, and rapport.
